Real Central Appraisal District Agricultural Advisory Board


Effective August 28, 1989, Sec. 6.12, Property Tax Code, requires chief appraisers to appoint an agricultural appraisal advisory board. The Legislature created this advisory board to help improve communications between the farming and ranching community and the appraisal district. Under the Property Tax Code, the Board’s function is to advise the chief appraiser on major issues dealing with agricultural and timber appraisal—net to land, degree of intensity standards, and other agricultural use and appraisal issues. As an advisory body, the Board has no decision making authority or responsibility.

The chief appraiser and the appraisal review board have statutory and legal responsibility to set values and make decisions on qualification for agricultural appraisal—this responsibility cannot legally be delegated to any other group or person not directly under the chief appraiser’s authority. The agricultural advisory board should not become involved in matters dealing with individual properties or in approving applications for agricultural appraisal.

Current Board members are: Lanny Leinweber and Martha Sames.

The Current Agricultural Extension Agent is: TBD
